10 Totally Unexpected Google Earth Birds-Eye Views
Here are 10 amazing Google Earth birds-eye views.
Thanks to Google Earth, people no longer need a plane or a satellite of their own to see how the world’s landscape looks from above.
Here are 10 of the most amazing views.
Number 10. World’s Largest Airplane Graveyard. If retired fighter planes are your kind of thing, you’ll be happy to know that you can easily check out what the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group is storing. The boneyard located just outside of Tucson houses about 5 thousand defunct aircrafts.
Number 9. Colorado River Potash Mine. It may be considered by some to be a significant environmental hazard, but it’s hard to deny that from the air it’s absolutely stunning. The colored shapes are evaporation ponds used in the process of extracting potassium and salts.
Number 8. Arizona Desert Landing Strips. There’s a great deal of speculation surrounding why these are unmarked and in the middle of nowhere. Those in the know say that even though the location lacks the telltale signs that it’s the property of the military, it belongs to the Arizona Army National Guard.
Number 7. Herd of Hippos. While a lot of mammals, including humans, prefer to do their basking and lying around in the sun, for hippos it’s all about the mud. This massive relaxation moment was spotted in Tanzania.
Number 6. The Badlands Guardian. That there’s a giant head wearing earbuds carved into the Alberta, Canada landscape is impressive. What’s downright fascinating is that the sculpting of the massive rock formation was done almost entirely by nature. Appropriately, the listening technology was the doing of humans, although it was coincidental.
Number 5. The Wrecked Costa Concordia. For some time the luxury liner stayed right where it had crashed, just off the coast of an Italian island. After years spent partially underwater the ship was finally floated to the top so it could be towed away.
Number 4. A Possible Sea Monster. Something enormous took a trek through a New Zealand bay, but what it was remains unclear. Whale was ruled out as the turns indicated by the path are too sharp, and boat got crossed off the list because there isn’t enough foam in the trail.
Number 3. Great Big Target. As is often the case with strange symbols scrawled on the landscape, particularly in a barren area like the Nevada scrublands, it’s believed to be the work of either the US military or aliens. Guesses include bomb radius tester and UFO landing marker.
Number 2. Batman Symbol. Batman fans, rejoice. The Batcave has been located. It’s on U.S. Air Force’s 44th Fighter Squadron’s Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. It seems that it’s been there since the 1980s, which is around when the symbol was painted.
Number 1. Water Buffalo On The Move. It’s not clear where they were going, but this massive group of great big animals was seen wandering across a game reserve in Tanzania. It’s unlikely much got in their way.
